For each babysitting job, Ashley charges \$2.50 for bus fare and \$8.00 per hour for each hour she works. She charged \$30.50 for her last babysitting jib.

2. If t represents the hours she babysits,

Charge = 8t + 2.50

that is, your equation would be

8t + 2.50 = 30.50

I have not clue why Smiley is multiplying the hourly fee by the cost of the bus ride.
Smiley's reply is gibberish.
